Any day now the sun will start shining consistently (for more than a day, or an hour, at a time!) and Vancouverites will suddenly find themselves in summer mode.
Ideally we stay physically active year round but the reality is that everybody kicks it up a notch or two in the summer. We've heard a lot of people fretting that the unseasonable weather has kept them indoors and they're worried they aren't ready for all their planned summer activities. 
Don't give up! There's still time to ramp up for summer. Here's what we'd suggest:

  • If you are already working with a personal trainer then its time to turn your attention to nutrition. Precision's in-house nutrition expert Jade McClure says it, and other lifestyle changes such as stress and sleep, can account for 80% of results (see below for some tips). You'll notice a big energy boost and the time you spend training will be more effective. Our next Nutrition Seminar is coming up on July 13th if you need some help cleaning up your eating.
  • If you don't have a weekly training schedule then set up an appointment with one of our Personal Trainers - they can help you optimize your workouts to get quick results, safely. 
Hope your summer is filled with active, sunny days!

You don't have to spend much time with Jade McClure to realize that nutrition is his consuming passion.
As he tells his clients: "You can't just concentrate on working out if you really want to see results you need to work in first." He points out that while about 20% of your physical health is based on exercise and genetics, an astounding 80% is based on lifestyle (sleep and stress) and nutrition. 
Jen and Courtney have trained with Jade McClure for 8 months.

e says that "Nothing tastes as good as fit and healthy feels" and the truth of that quickly became clear to long-time training buddies Jen and Courtney.
They've been training for marathons together for over three years and along they way they've tried other personal trainers and bootcamps. Courtney's dad referred them to Jade when they were looking for training that was more tailored to their needs. "We really like Jade's well-rounded, consistent approach and strong technique," said Jen. "The biggest realization I've gained from Jade" adds Courtney "is that I don't have to spend hours in the gym to get in shape if I also focus on my nutrition." 
Jade has become their 'clean eating' resource.  Jen and Courtney run with two other women, and Jade got all four of them on a clean eating program.  "We noticed a huge difference," says Jen, "weight loss, increased energy, improved overall health."
Jen and Courtney ran their fourth marathon in May (plus a handful of half marathons). Now they're more in maintenance mode. Courtney is focusing on her upper body in anticipation of her wedding in August. Each week they train twice with Jade, run at least twice together and possibly a few times on their own.
"They're really dream clients" says Jade, "they show up early, always warmed up, work hard and always have fun."
Trainer Tip from Jade: You Are What You Eat 
Each piece of food you eat is used to build new cells in your body. That is why it is so important to stay away from low quality processed foods. Here are a few tips to help you identify those nasty processed foods:

  • If you can't pronounce the ingredients on the label of a food item, don't eat it.
    It's probably chemical.
  • If it wasn't on this planet thousands of years ago, don't eat it.
    Its been processed and manufactured by humans.
  • If it's white don't eat it.
    Table salt, white sugar, white flour etc. have all been bleached and processed.
Two million cells per second are being regenerated based on what you consume. Just imagine what a difference it will make to how you look and feel if you avoid processed foods for just one month.
Join one of Jade McClure's Nutrition Seminars to get a whole foods eating plan based on your unique metabolism.
